The materials in this collection were once the property of E. E. Ellis, who collected them for his personal library. The significance of the Robert E. Lee Camp No. 158, which met in Fort Worth, Texas, was the accumulation of the stories and other accounts of the veterans who fought for the Confederate States of America. The United Confederate Veterans gathered for several years in the late 19th Century and into the early 20th Century to relive the glory days of the struggle within the United States that tore the country apart. The soldiers overcame odds and hardships during and after the war.
